KYLIAN MBAPPE posted a defiant two-word message after France’s World Cup final heartbreak at the hands of Argentina.
French superstar Mbappe scored a hat-trick in the match, and netted in the shootout, but his incredible effort was ultimately in vain.

After Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria put Argentina 2-0 up, Mbappe netted two quickfire goals, his first being from the spot, to send the game to extra-time.
Messi then put Argentina back in front, only for Mbappe to score his second penalty, and third of the match, with two minutes left of extra-time.
While Mbappe scored his penalty in the shootout, his third spot-kick of the game, Kingsley Coman and Aurelien Tchouameni missed for Les Bleus.
But Mbappe, who scored eight goals to win the Golden Boot, cannot be faulted for his efforts.
He was inconsolable on the France bench as he watched Argentina left the trophy.
Mbappe took to social media on Monday, posting a picture of himself walking past the trophy while holding the Golden Boot alongside a defiant two-word message in French.
He simply said: “Nous reviendrons.”
The phrase translates in English to: “We’ll be back.”
His post was liked over four million times on Instagram within an hour of being uploaded.
And Mbappe is right.
The Paris Saint-Germain forward will still only be 26-years-old by the time of the next World Cup.
Having already won the tournament with France fours years ago and reaching the final this time around, Mbappe could well deliver on his promise.
